Shania Twain goes along for the ride

Whoa! What an entry.

Country music star Shania Twain had tourists in a tizzy when she showed up Thursday in the lobby at Caesars Palace with a white horse among her entourage.

Twain was shooting a commercial to promote her upcoming residency at Caesars Palace, starting Dec. 1.

It might be the most memorable scene at Caesars since Robert Redford rode a horse off a stage and through the casino for the 1979 film "The Electric Horseman."

Twain’s red carpet arrival left some onlookers breathless. Nay, it was more like unbridled joy.

"Shania Twain is 20 ft from me … on a horse … In a casino," tweeted a Michelle Horton.


A graphic video of legendary headliner Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy is reportedly being shopped to media outlets, according to the celebrity website, TMZ.com.

Three caretakers are accusing Horn of sexually assaulting them, the website said Thursday. TMZ reps, after viewing the video, characterized it as "extremely disturbing."

Horn’s publicist, Dave Kirvin, confirmed a cease-and-desist order was issued, saying, "This is not a new case."

In a similar case last September, U.S. District Judge Roger Hunt ordered attorneys for Oliver Preiss, a former personal assistant to Horn, and his wife, Beatrice, to pay almost $40,000 for making baseless legal claims against Horn and a company owned by Roy and Siegfried Fischbacher.


In what should rank among the most spectacular settings for a Las Vegas film or TV premiere, the July 25 debut of Bravo’s "Top Chef Masters" Season 4 will include a viewing party at The Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.

Viewing parties will be held at the pool for all 10 episodes, which will be shown on the 65-foot-high digital marquee, starting at 9 p.m. The show was filmed last September.

"Peepshow" star Holly Madison will be among the guest judges. Celebrity chef Curtis Stone will return as host, with regular judges James Oseland and Ruth Reichl and two newcomers.
